to risk the full faith and credit of the united states for whatever agenda you have. the business community felt that. the public felt that. and so the fact that they have backed off both -- not only the idea that we should hold debt ceiling hostage, but second that it shouldn't be one for one cuts, you know, boehner used to say that, the house proposal doesn't say that, dollar in cutting for every dollar in raising the debt ceiling. >> would you support a short-term measure to force you to pass a budget? >> i think it should be longer because we don't want to play fiscal cliff every three months. but it's a positive step. >> you never get a clean debt ceiling raise. >> yes, you should. >> that's not a question of whether you should. but historically it's not been the case. >> mitch mcconnell proposed it two years ago and we passed it. but let me say this on the budget. we democrats have always intended to do a budget this year. for two reasons. first, it is not true that we haven't had budget control in effect over the last several years. the budget control act of 2011 put rigid
lobby" in a 2006 interview. >> i'm a united states senator. not an israeli senator. i'm a united states senator. i support israel. but my first interest is i take an oath of office to the constitution of the united states, not to a president, not to a party, not to israel. in 1988 he called james hormelthen president bill clinton's choice "openly aggressively gay." saying his sexual orientation would be an inhibiting factor. hagel has since apologized for that comment last month saying those remarks were insensitive. but outgoing congressman barney frank blasted him last night in a statement, "i cannot think of any other minority group in the u.s. today where such a negative statement and action made in 1988 would not be an obstacle to a major presidential appointment." t t the two have remained close since. the president has used that alliance as part of his sales pitch for hagel. >> i've served with chuck hagel, i know him. he is a patriot. >> senator jack reid who was also on that 2008 trip is expected to be, to do much of the leg work in the senate to get hagel's nomination over the
is are we united in drying that up from the people i have talked to? the answer is yes. krystal ball, when you have lost the socialites, i believe the republicans have nothing left to lose. >> well, it -- >> what else is there? this is rock bottom? >> it looks pretty bleak. >> a hack, fundraiser. >> she had strong words there, well, i was looking back at the analysis "the washington post" did last summer regarding the republican party, and the sort of old republicans which i assume she is, fiscally conservative, typically northeastern, typically well off still make up about 22% of the party. so a decent chunk of the party. and what georgeette there shows, they make up a certain amount of the funding base which is why they have had a lock on the republican party. and the innovation for the growth of the tea party is their ability to have larger scale donor movements, smaller dollar to add up to a larger amount. and for a while, the georgeettes of the world in 2010 were willing to ride the wave, because sure we were electing crazy people but they were in other districts. now they see how the
that the president of the united states is going to nominate a defense secretary who wants to go to war with iran, they've clearly not paid attention the last few years. the reality is to find someone who makes sure our national security is safe. and issues are protected but not simply someone who wants to rattle sabers and go to war. >> no one is saying go to war, but it's the worst negotiating technique in the world to take something completely off of the table and get nothing for it. basically, what you said to the country, whose president said they would like to write israel off the face of the map that we will not respond, we will not be aggressive. >> with all due respect, i don't want to sit there and listen to lecturing about national security from republicans and administration, the previous one that led us into two wars, including one we never had to fight. that being said, let's give chuck hagel his time and chance to defend himself and his case to why he should be secretary of defense. >> there are a lot of democrats who are not ready to support him. keep that in mind. >> i'm going to
to run for the united states senate, and they certainly displayed that. one of the underlying issues here is these senators who are talking about the details of what happened with susan rice make the argument that this was a case where the american public was told one scenario, that not only was slight of what happened but in contrast to officials say was a terrorist attack. while they are kind of picking on these issues that happened weeks, now a couple of months ago, they are telling me when we talked about that, they are interested in trying to shine a light on the fact that it shouldn't be a case if information is withheld, that's one thing. but if information is sending the public in a different direction, that is worthy of more scrutiny. that's why there's been so much focus on this. >> david sanger, tom friedman, one of your colleagues at "the new york time" wrote today that we're not looking at the big picture in foreign policy. we have so circumscribed our secretary of state, we evaluate them by how many million-mile markers or how many countries they visited, but not sort of the
that they served in segregated units meant that they were just not considered for that medal, even though some of them deserved it. the army study found that there were seven african-american soldiers who were decorated for their service, but that decoration should have been the medal of honor. they only did not receive the nation's highest military honor because they were black and served in segregated units. president clinton asked congress to suspend the statute of limitations on the award, and in 1997, finally, more than 50 years late, he awarded seven medals of honor to black men for heroism in world war ii. the only one of them who was still alive to receive it was vernon baker. serving is not the same as serving equally. there has been distinguished service by african-american soldiers in every american war all the way back to the revolutionary war on which they fought on both sides. and of course the civil war, and of course world war i, and every war we have had. when hawaii senator daniel inouye died several weeks ago, we remembered his service in world war ii as part of a segregated
for itself, each individual unit would decide whether to admit gay scouts and then parents could decide for themselves where to send their children. now, the board -- the scout's board of directors meets next week, so it's possible that this change, if it's approved, could be announced as early as then, but this is highly controversial, but a scouting official says that the consideration of this change is something that's coming from the grassroots level, that individual chapters have urged the boy scouts to reconsider this position. something that they announced just last july. they were reaffirming their old policy. this would be a po found change, andrea. >> and, pete, just to explain how profound a change, just very, very recently a boy scouts troop here, not far from the nation's capital in cloverly, maryland, had a nondiscrimination policy, and it said pack 442 will not discriminate against any psychiatried or family based on race, religion, national origin, or sexual orientation, and the national boy counties made them take that down if their website. >> you know, i'm not sure wh
of time. we have five seconds here. >> i don't think that the united states of america can be effective if we stand with the forces of autocracy in front of freedom. that's fundamental. >> i have to make that the final word. thanks to all of you here. quick programming note, stay with nbc news for special coverage of president obama's inauguration starting tomorrow on "today." that's all for today. if it's sunday, it's "meet the press." >>> i barack hussein obama do solemnly swear -- >>> president obama takes the oath of office for the second time at the white house. good afternoon to you, i'm craig melvin and you are watching msnbc, the place for politics, and this is how president obama's second term started earlier today. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, barack hussein obama do solemnly swear -- >> i, barack hussein obama, do s solemnly swear -- >> to execute the office of the president of the united states -- >> to execute the office of the president of the united states -- >> will protect and preserve and defend the constitution of the united states. >> will
, barack hussein obama, do s solemnly swear -- >> to execute the office of the president of the united states -- >> to execute the office of the president of the united states -- >> will protect and preserve and defend the constitution of the united states. >> will protect and preserve the constitution of the united states. >> so help me god. >> so help me god. >> thank you, mr. chief justice. >>> we have team coverage of the 57th presidential inauguration, and luke russert is with us on the washington mall, but we start with peter alexander on the north lawn of the white house this afternoon. pete, we know that the first family attended the historic metropolitan church this morning, and what are they up to right now? >> well, they get some quiet time together as a family which compared to the hundreds of thousands of people now converging on the capitol ahead of tomorrow's public swearing in and the presidential address, the inaugural address to take place, we believe they are here at the white house right now. we have a good look at sasha obama, the youngest daugt e of the oobamas to
experiences. so when i heard the president of the united states say stonewall after saying seneca falls and selma, sort of an electric shock went through me. whoa, the president of the united states just woef in the gay rights movement with the women's rights movement and the traditional civil rights movement, but he didn't just leave it there. that would have been box checking, but in the next paragraph he talked about our gay brothers and sisters and equal treatment under the law, and that went well beyond what i think anyone even expected a president of the united states to say in an inaugural address one of their premier platforms for the american president to not only talk to the american people, but to tack to the world. while this was a domestic address, a completely agree with that, the entire world was watching, and the president said that the story of gay americans as part of the larger american story. >> in a speech where he didn't mention any single foreign country, right? >> and also, chris, it just occurs to me, that moment was in some ways analogous to when hillary clinto
unconstitutional measure, edict, that's being issued by the president of the united states. we need to send a clear message to the federal government that we're not going to continue what we enforce what we believe to be unconstitutional laws. >> different issue, same words. states' rights. back in the 1950s and '60s, local police often stood by and refused to enforce new civil rights laws. now, some conservative sheriffs say they'll refuse to enforce new gun control laws from washington because they may consider them unconstitutional. today's conservatives aren't opposing the right of our children to go to school. but they are standing in the way of our children going to school safely. that's why president obama is proposing these strong, common sense solutions to gun violence. >> that most fundamental set of rights to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. fundamental rights that were denied to college stunts dents virginia tech and elementary school students in newtown and kids on street corners in chicago. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> we're all responsible for protec
batteries. united airlines has already announced it will comply with the order, they have no choice to do so. remember also boeing is a dow component and selling off in the aftermarket and remember this is all related to the recent spate of incidents on board the 787 both here and the united states and in japan. there's been fires in the cockpit on two occasions and fuel leaks as well. our phone phil lebeau will join us with this story. now back to the headline story, president obama called on congress to further restrict assault weapons and limit ammo magazines today. marking the broadest push for gun control in a generation we have cnbc eamon javers who is here to join us with the details. >> reporter: it was an emotional event over at the white house. the president flanked by small children announcing his proposals on gun violence announcing a new assault weapons ban, limits on magazine sizes, enhanced background checks and access to mental health. the president said however that lawmakers up on capitol hill have a stark choice to make. >> what's more important? doing whatever it takes to
of the united states is saying that. >> so where do things go from here? nbc's tracie potts is in washington for us. how is the president going to get the public and congress to support this legislative agenda? >> reporter: you were talking about the nra getting ready for a battle. the white house has a battle plan as well. it started last night. the president put an op-ed in the connecticut local connecticut newspaper near newtown where the shooting happened putting the pressure on congress saying they need to help and not hinder this process. the white house also has a campaign style tour planned for the president to talk about his gun control measures. no word yet what the stops are but they are hoping it will drum up public support. the polls are showing the public is increasingly favoring an assault weapons ban and even universal background checks a big part of his plan. finally the white house is putting out a new website with videos from some of the victims, again all part of a big campaign to try to get more public support for these measures that he's announced. >> tracie potts live

romney would have been the president of the united states. this is fundamentally changing the rules. this would be like saying, we want the nfl to change the rules, a quarterback can no longer run in the offense anymore. >> democrats have brought this up before, but in this day and age, with twitter, and with everything such in focus, do you think republicans can really push this through, or will the public outcry be so much to say, look, president obama won by hundreds of thousands of votes in virginia. why could you do this? >> luke, that remains the to be seen. "the washington post" is reporting that virginia's senate will be acting on this legislation as early as next week. we'll look to see. reince priebus, the rnc chairman, who's supposed to be re-elected as rnc chairman was interviewed a few weeks ago where he said, look, i think some of the states that are proposing this is a pretty good idea, although he says that the rnc doesn't have the final word on this, it will be interesting to see what other republican leaders have to say. because at the end of the day, this is looki
in the united states senate spent our time trying to prevent that 60th. thank god for senator lieberman. i think history has already made a judgment about the surge, sir, and you're on the wrong side of it. and your refusal to answer whether you were right or wrong about it is going to have an impact on my judgment as to whether or not to vote for your confirmation or not. i hope you will reconsider the fact you refused to answer a fundamental question about an issue that took the lives of thousands of young americans. >> senator, there was more to it than just flooding -- >> i'm asking about the surge, senator hagel. >> i know you are and i'm trying to explain my position. the beginning of the surge also factored into what general allen had put in place in anbar province, the sunni awaken iing. we put over, as you know, 100,000 -- >> i'm very aware of the history of the surge and the anbar awakening, and i also am aware any casual observer will know the surge was the fundamental factor led by two great leaders, general petraeus and -- >> i don't know if that would have been required and cost us
and communities across the united states of america need to understand that this is going to be hard, tough, long and la boroborious, but it going to be worth it. >> congressman moran, i read on bloomberg that there's an estimation that come 2015 flash flood there is no legislative change, there will be more deaths per year in this country than deaths as a con discrepancies of road traffic accidents. they're anticipating 33,000 gun deaths as compared to 32,000 as a consequence of road traffic accidents in 2015. these statistics are just mounting by the day unless somebody decides to take some kind of action. >> you're absolutely right, martin. it's inevitable that we will have over 30,000 deaths every year, 10,000 of them homicides, 20,000 suicides or accidental deaths, mostly children getting hold of a loaded firearm in their home. this is going to continue to happen, and many of them through massacres of innocent young babies such has happened in newtown. it will happen if we don't take action. >> and yet, congressman, i hear larry pratt, the executive director of gun owners of america, saying

is 15 times that of other wealthy nations. in 2008 japan had 11 people killed with guns. the united states had 12,000. in 2012 the entire united kingdom population of 64 million had 35 gun deaths. the city of chicago alone had 500. how can mr. lapierre be right when he says the only answer to the exponential rate of firearm homicides in this country is more firearms? >> look at the rate of gun homicides in states like texas where gun control is not a factor and people can carry concealed weapons. the rate is very low. you look at cities -- you made my point. >> i don't think i have, sir. we think of aurora, colorado, we think of the oregon shopping mall shooting. but you were going to -- >> i was -- >> one minute, mr. ward. >> fortunately, we live in a world where there is such a thing as math and statistics and the statistics have shown quite clearly, the highest rate of gun deaths in the country would be louisiana. louisiana also happens to have the least gun regulations. illinois, where chicago sits and people love to cite chicago, chicago is a city where they have a myriad of pr
as an opportunity for leverage to get those spending cuts that they didn't just get. the president of the united states says he's not going to play ball on that. he may unilaterally raise the debt and may lower the debt and there are a few options on the table so we'll have to see how that plays out. >> do you think he might invoke the constitution to prevent congress from holding him hostage? >> we have to see. the white house pretty much shut that down in december and november when there were discussions of possibly doing that especially when liberal democrats were suggesting he should do it and he had proposed and it was quickly shut down the possibility of being able to do this in the future without congressional approval and that was shut down not only by republicans, but also democrats who said how dare he think about it. i think it would be a radical move and only because there was some serious gridlock. >> jonathan, let's turn our focus now to the speaker. we covered speaker boehner. this is what the former speaker of the house had to say about him. let's take a listen on the other side.
